GDay.

A weird problem has cropped up. Only slight but of course a nagging one. The date and time function don't carry over after midnight. I mean I have been tracking it since these past 2 days Here's what's happening:

Say at 11;30 p.m. I notice it's running at 3:34 p.m.that is the time I shut off my PC last night. Then I changed the date and time accordingly. Now from 11;30 PM to perhaps 12;00 AM it goes fine but yes i actually falls back to 11;30 AM and then again through that half hour now. CMOS battery is low? Or is there some other problem?

Sorry Phill but nothing has worked out so far. The problem with the clock remains where it was.

Gday.
If the cmos battery is low, this may cause the time and date in BIOS not to be saved when you shut down. Even though you have a new MB, the battery could have been quite old/faulty, rare, but has been known. Simple replace it.
Consult the MB manual, pc health?monitoring and replacing the cmos battery. you are looking for Vbat voltage. or if you have Speedfan installed, you can find the Vbat reading near to the bottom of the window.
You will then need to set the time, date and region in the BIOS, then check the setting as the HP guide given by Phillpower2.
